HD Tach has been around for a long time and is excellent when it comes to testing hard drive performance. It is also a very handy program when it comes to testing the controller used on particular motherboards. Tests such as Read, CPU Utilization and Burst are available at a click of the button and give you a good idea of how the hard drive can perform from system to system.

In HD Tach we see the performance across the drive. It was a bit interesting to see that our 64GB sample was writing data faster than it could read it. Reviews of the 128GB drives show that the opposite is true with the larger models. The performance was still very high for both reads and writes. The read speed averaged 157.8 MB/s and the write speed averaged out to 172.3 MB/s.
